Welshpool Mid Wales Airport lies in the beautiful Severn valley and is on the edge of some of the most stunning open flying country anywhere in the UK.

Developed from the 1990s onwards, the airport is now a home for numerous business and light aircraft. It is also the base for the Mid Wales Air Ambulance. Here you can get lessons and gain a licence flying helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and microlights. You could also just come along and watch the comings and goings of a busy general aviation hub.

Bob Jones Memorial Airshow 2014 - Line up

We can finally confirm the line up for this year's airshow - and I think we have beaten last year's!

TyphoonBack by popular demand, and sure to send sales in earplugs rocketing, the Eurofighter Typhoon will once again roar across the skies. That's not the only fast jet, however as we also welcome an MK82a Strikemaster, flown by Bala-raised Mark Petrie. 

The cornerstone to any airshow, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is back, this time featuring the Hurricane, Spitfire and the Douglas C-47 Dakota. The RAF will also be providing an exhilarating display by the Tucano and the much-loved Falcons parachute display team.

Pitts SpecialLocal favourite Bob Pooler returns once again in his Sligsby Firefly along with Lauren Richardson in her distinctive red Pitts Special. This year however Lauren won't be the only girl in the sky as we host the Breitling Wing Walkers. Another pair of beauties come in the form of two Bücker Jungmanns

Still want more? You cheeky so-and-so! Well how about a touch of Hollywood glamour from a Spartan 7W Executive! Plus the GliderFX display team will show that you don't need an engine to produce some incredible stunts while the Total Gyrocoper returns with its rather baffling display. Finally, the Festival of Transport will be on the fields with its enormous range of vehicles, old and well, very old.

FalconsI hope you agree that that is an incredible line-up, and so we are honored that, on top of all of that, the airshow will be opened by the Red Arrows. Ambassadors of the UK and the elite of aerobatic teams, the Red Arrows have displayed for Presidents, Prime Ministers and Royalty alike. This year they will display for you.

The Bob Jones Memorial Air Show returns Sunday 8 June 2014.

Please note that the line up is subject to change and dependent on weather and other factors beyond our control.
